    Ah, ok the Settings home page.

    The Settings header on the home page like below is still in A/B testing, so that would be why you don't see it yet.

    Is changing the default account picture the only way to get your personalized account picture to display in the Settings header if you use a local account?

    Hello, :)

    I believe it references the same account picture in the Settings header.

    It works, but the picture is somewhat blurry. The picture looks sharper on the login screen.

    Hmm, seems there must be a specific size used for the Settings header that is getting resized causing it to be a bit blurry.

    It doesn't crop the image like it does on the logon screen. It just resizes it to fit.

    I tried manually cropping the image so that it matches what is shown on the logon screen. It's still a bit blurry, but it's better than it was.

    Is it possible to change back to the old pictures without this? Like I don't like the white profile picture with black lines, would rather have the dark picture with white lines.

    I know you have the pictures available for download but it seems to be missing the files for "user.bmp", "guest.png", and "guest.bmp". I'm guessing you can just copy and paste user.png to make guest.png, but the bmp files seem to have different hex values. Not sure if just renaming extension to bmp would work.

    Also do these have transparency effects? I thought the original dark ones were transparent when signing in. White ones seem fully opaque though.
